 I  picked  these  up  locally  two  weeks  back  as  RCS.  I  haven't  kept  any  so  far  and  have  no  idea  about  the  quality  of  these

 Quality  wise  i  would  say  they  are  average  quality  based  on  the  pic.  good  fire  reds  will  display  a  much  brighter  red  with  a  pronounced  darker  red  marking  on  its  back.

 Hi
 Of  the  ten  that  i  picked  up  6  died  over  the  next  two  weeks.  The  remaining  four  seem  to  have  settled  down  in  the  tank.
 
 Toady  I  found  these  in  the  tank

 
 
 
 the  large  one  is  about  5mm  in  size  and  the  small  one  sitting  on  the  Staurogyne  leaf  is  about  3mm  in  size.  Over  the  next  hour  i  manged  to  count  7  of  the  small  ones.  The  CO2  in  the  tank  was  turned  off  after  adding  them   {you  can  see  the  ill  effects  on  the  Staurogyne  }  .
 I  am  not  sure  what  these  guys  are  eating{parents  and  shrimplets},  they  don't  seem  interested  in  the  Tetrabits  that  sink  down.

 Thumb Up  congrats  on  gettin  these  little  water  rats  to  breed,  soon  your  tank  will  be  filled  with  shrimplets,
 the  ones  you  have  pictured  and  by  the  size  you  mentioned  they  are  atleast  15-20  days  old,  new  born  shrimplets  are  very  minute  and  barely  visible  to  the  untrained  eye,
 they  might  be  eatin  the  tetra  bits  when  you  turn  off  the  lights  also  since  you  have  only  a  small  number  of  them  they  are  feastin  on  the  bio  film  in  the  tank  and  on  algae  if  any.
 if  you  are  having  pressurised  Co2  for  this  tank  you  can  switch  it  back  on  cause  it  wont  cause  them  any  harm  whereas  DIY  CO2  is  harmful  for  shrimps  because  it  produces  an  uncontrolled  amount  of  CO2  whereas  its  vice  versa  in  pressurized.

 Thanks  guys
 
 I  realize  that  its  likely  that  they  didn't  breed  in  my  tank.  I  am  planning  to  shift  out  a  few  Harlequin  Rasboras  that  are  there  in  the  tank  and  leave  the  tank  to  the  shrimps
 
 Anyone  running  shrimp  tanks  with  Flourish  Excel?

 Hi  Unni,
 
 Congrates...
 
 I  have  RCS  last  2  yrs.  in  my  tank.  I  bring  10  of  them.  And  they  continue  breeding.  
 Only  in  summer  I  have  seen  thier  breed  very  less.  Just  2  week  back  I  got  3  new  batch  of  RCS  arround  60-70.
 
 I  always  feed  them  Tetra  bits.  No  prob.  Sometimes  I  feed  them  "Palang  Shak"  (sorry  I  don't  know  the  english  term  of  this  vegetable  but  u  know  punjabi  food  called  "Palang-Paneer"  ,  I  mean  that  Palang).
 
 Also  I  agree  with  icecube...No  prob  with  pressurized  CO2.  
 
 And  with  RCS  I  have  Rainbow  Shirmp,  Zebra  Shrimp,  Red  nose  shrimp,  Wood  Shrimp....till  today  no  prob.
 
 Now  I  am  waiting  for  some  Cardinal  &  Bumble  bee  shrimp.  Let's  see...
 
 So  keep  going...within  a  month  u  have  lots  of  RCS.....  Thumb Up

 Hi  Abhi,
 
 Guess  you  are  referring  to  Paalak  or  Spinach  (English).  Though  omnivore,  RCS  happily  accept  both  Greens  as  well  as  meaty  food.  While  feeding  Paalak  leaves  (Spinach),  make  sure  you  boil  them  for  2-3  minutes  to  make  them  little  soft  for  their  ease  of  eating.  You  can  also  feed  them  such  soft-boiled  carrots.  They  also  like  tubifex  worms,  which  are  good  for  their  growth.
